Episode #718: Give Them A Whole Ghost Town
First Broadcast: 11/23/15
After a lifetime of sleeping late, Descartes was suddenly forced to start waking up early, and he died a few months later. A few hundred years later, on November 13, 2015, some dickheads murdered over 100 people in Paris, causing all the Republican Presidential candidates and the governors of most of the 50 states to completely freak out over Syrian refugees who want to enter the United States to escape the violence from the Assad government, Daesh, and the Syrian Civil War in general. Despite the fact that all the Republicans running for President claim to be Christians, they all seem to have completely disregarded all of Matthew 25, specifically Matthew 25:45:

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
Maybe it's too much to hope for more tolerance to break out at this point, but there's no harm in trying.

So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a this neat little public access TV show on Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else, Kim. The complicated answer is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times, the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.

If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel like sending me snail mail, the address is:

Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009

You can also email me at, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.

And now, the "Thought of the Moment" . . .

Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.

Read all about my letter, which was published in the New York Press on July 9, 1997.

Here you can view an op-ed I sent to the New York Times, which they never printed. Maybe I'll add an even larger essay in the future.
